Re: M3/M2 Enclosure

I need the enclosure for printing polycarbonate. I have another printer inside the enclosure I made for PC and it works great. But I wanted to be able to make 2-color parts with the M3-ID. I do print a lot of PETG but switched to PC on some parts because some of them started to warp badly in very ho...

Re: M3/M2 Enclosure

Very old post but I purchased one of these from Partsbuilt recently so I could save time building one myself. I was particularly keen on how it vents the electronics box outside the enclosure, possibly eliminating the need to mount the electronics outside. Well, I was disappointed with it. I tried i...

Re: Uneven extrusion?

Possibly the set screws on the motor pulley are loose. I had a similar look on one of my printers and I traced it to the gears on the motor.

Re: Firmware and Octoprint Updates

I have had no issues using the non-MakerGear version of Octoprint on the M2 or the M3-ID. I’m also using PrusaSlicer instead of Simplify3D for everything except dual modes on the M3. I say this because I think it’s fine to experiment. There doesn’t seem to be any risk with using standard Octoprint, ...

Re: Glass Bed

The yellow coating on the glass is meant to stay in place. It helps with adhesion and is also replaceable once it gets damaged. I don’t know if they make sheets or rolls wide enough for this printer though. You can also print on other bed types. It’s common to switch to a magnetic, flexible, texture...

Re: T0 extrudes thinner than T1?

It could be a difference with the filaments. When I got my m3id t1 was ever so slightly thinner. Traced it to the t1 hot end being installed very slightly higher than t0 and after I ran the calibration on octoprint it got fixed.

Re: Brand new to 3d printing and having a few issues with M3-ID rev. 1

Brian, wow, just saw this post and am very surprised no one has spoken up so far. Were you able to get this sorted out? I am also a new M3-ID owner and I did have some similar issues with T1 banging into T0. I think I solved this by using a different printer profile I downloaded from MakerGear's Git...

Re: Does M2 Marlin Firmware Support "Stealth Mode"?

On my Prusa MK3, you select stealth mode on the printer screen. On my M2 screen, I don't see any setting that would be equivalent so I don't think it's part of the firmware. Same with on my M3.

Re: Prusaslicer 2.x

Regarding saving project as a 3MF as opposed to exporting configs: I use 3MF saves more especially when I'm printing multiple objects that need careful placement on the bed. It saves everything like custom supports, modifiers, all the work I did. I save configs when I have some settings I will be us...

Re: Prusaslicer 2.x

Sweet! Thanks for the tutorial link. I agree - there are some printer settings that are better off in the print settings. I'm sure you already figured out that you can save each of the setting groups individually for later use. If I make a lot of changes to all groups I want to retrieve for certain ...
